Favorite Crafts

I like making cell phone charms and jewelry, especially earrings. I'm learning knitting and crochet. I've recently got totally hooked on making ATCs. I hand draw many of mine, which has been great, because it has really gotten me feeling creative again.

I enjoy making crafts out of recycled materials.

I'm a doodler, and have tons of weird little sketches in all my notebooks from school and work.

Coffee (flavored and non), tea (all sorts), manga, anime, books, strange crafts, cats, owls, turtles, Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, comic books, poetry

Colors- Blues, black, earth-tones, flames


Stamps, scrapbook paper scraps, interesting postcards, notecards, stickers


Comment: Thanks for the turtle ATC, Gillian.

zoev1975 rated for A package full of...... on Dec 3, 2013
Comment: As mentioned in my message I hate having to rate like this, but the parcel was sent 13 days late. I totally understand that things happen sometimes, but if you had just let me know there would be a delay, it wouldn't have been a problem. I did love what you sent though, and am truly grateful for it.

Comment: Thank you! The package finally got here. Since none of you other partners have yet rated for this swap, there must have been a bad mixup at the postoffice, for certain.. Hope you can work it out.
Comment: love it :) thank you

Comment: A great package! The stamps and the Superwholock stickers were my favorite, but I love everything. The London stickers should come in useful when I work on my scrapbook from my trip to London last year. The only thing I couldn't figure out immediately was the bunny. Then I remembered Bluebell! And a bonus book I haven't read. Thanks!
Response: I thought you'd dig the SuperWhoLock. Sorry Bluebell glows green instead of blue.
Comment: I had to make a separate list of "non-YA" female main characters when writing my list, so I was pleased to see your THREE lists! So many familiar faces and ones I haven't met yet. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and for the laughs as well :-)

natasha838 rated for Recommend Me a Book! on Jun 23, 2013
Comment: I hadn't heard of this book before, but it looks like a good one. It's now on my to-read list. Thanks!
Response: That wasn't me. I'm sending my cards out today.

Comment: Fabulous! Cassette tape eraser, ATC, all your great comments--I am so eager to read this book now! And I just finished earreading Divergent two days ago, so that's awesome timing with the postcard. I might copy down everyone's top ten lists in past/future swaps in the notebook (and add many of my own-I LOVE LISTS! Also, I am eager to check out some of the sites I'd not heard of); the notebook was so clever. And a John Green author trading card-YAY! I can't wait to wear the bracelets to BookCrossing meetups this summer. And I have such love for InuYasha. Awww. This whole collection of items is so fantastic. You did a great job hunting and creating!

Comment: I received this today. Sent a little late, but definitely worth the wait. This was an amazing package full of goodies this browncoat adores! The dress is definitely my favorite (love the wrench!). I put it up on my geek shelf at work next to the Star Trek engineer action figures (that seemed appropriate). The bag is fantastic; I love that it's handmade! I LOVE the stamps so much! And the stickers and an ATC and dino charm and memo pad and fortune cookie-ah! It was all perfect! Thank you!!!!!!!
Comment: Oh I love Cas from Anna Dressed in Blood! This was a great list of male characters that I can't wait to explore! Thanks :)

Comment: WOW! I love the fish!! It came out really great!! Thanks for all the extras!!
Comment: Thank you for your list. I like the way you formatted it with the pictures of the books. There are a couple I haven't read that are on my list, and the Garth Nix book? Never heard of it, but will be adding it to my list :)
Comment: Thank you for the ATC
bytekel rated for Sasquatch, Yeti, Bigfoot ATC on Feb 25, 2013
Comment: Thank you for the atcs!
Comment: Thank you for your list and note. It was great to read through your list (you were correct: a lot I knew and a few I didn't!) and the reasons you chose what you did. And yet another reason I need to read Howl's Moving Castle this year! I loved the wardrobe you used for the list as well--clever!
